Cardiologist gets $6 million in Hamot whistleblower case

March 8, 2018

A $20.75 million settlement was reached in the federal suit in November.

The federal False Claims Act allows citizens to sue on behalf of the government over allegations of fraud and other misuses of federal money. If the suit is successful or ends in a settlement, the citizen gets a percentage of the proceeds and the government gets the rest.
